Former NBA star Charles Barkley attended Saturday’s game in New England between the Patriots and Colts and told reporters that he doesn’t believe Patriots fans really appreciate their team.
“I want my team to have a chance to win. That’s all I want,” Barkley said, via MassLive.com. “In 99 percent of the cities in every other sport, not just football, your team sucks. You got no chance of winning. The Patriots have a legitimate shot of winning every year. That’s pretty cool. It bothers me, that y’all don’t appreciate them having a chance to win every year.”
Barkley was then asked what makes him think Patriots fans don’t appreciate their team.
“Y’all don’t (appreciate Patriots), and unfortunately, because of the internet and [expletive] like that, you either win a championship or you don’t. Well, first of all, I do understand that aspect of it. But every year in sports, in my profession — I get paid to do what y’all do — you don’t have a chance to win. In New England, you have a chance to win every year.”
I totally agree with Barkley. There’s not a more consistent team then the Patriots and their fans act like they’re the Jaguars some times.
